I had a customer call me with an issue of getting slow speeds on the net over wifi. I had them plug direct to the router & it worked fine. I direct connected to them & found nothing wrong router via settings. So when I had customer go back to wifi, I lost the connection to her & it would not let me reconnect. So I had her ping the router with -t & it would reply & time out. She then said it went from to destination host unreachable. She said it did that 6 times then went back to 1.1

Now I have never seen this before nor any one here (work) I spoke to. Do you think she just read it wrong?

Opportunity is missed by most because its dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Typically most routers will have as their IPaddress to login with and is the start of the dynamic IP address range given to the computer connected to the router.

Her router or the wireless connecting in her computer is at fault for the dropping of the connection.

This is really weird. My router's config is, but when i try to ping .1.1 it replys from the same stem as my external IP, so I'd assume that's the ISP's DNS.

I'd assume is not her router's config page. might be the router's internal DNS? (I'm no expert on this. Just a guess.)

Are these problems recent? It may be a hardware issue. Did you ask what router and wlan adapter she's using?
